Proposal Writing

Proposal Writing

Route2025 offers extensive proposal writing support for researchers and enterprises from the Saarland. It covers both joint projects as well as individual grants (e.g. ERC-Grants and SME Instrument) in Horizon 2020. Our support measures perfectly complement those already provided by individual organisations and other EU funding helpdesks in the Saarland, either by pointing you in the right direction or by supplementing their service offers with a specific approach tailored to your proposal endeavour.

Project Partner

Project Partner

Saarland researchers and companies participating as partners in a joint project, will receive strategic support concerning the proposal.

  • Strategic advice on how to align the proposal's approach with the call's thematic topic
  • Support in structuring the project's content and identifying its objectives, more specifically its outcomes and their application/exploitation
  • Thorough and critical review of the complete proposal

We can also help write or contribute towards certain non-scientific proposal parts such as explaining the project's impact, and you can count on our support in finding international project partners.
